Hello. It can be a numerous amount of things. But I can tell u from experience that the simplest thing but at the same time very difficult to distinguish is header gaskets. I kid u not, I installed a new header gasket on both sides and swore it would be good to go. But the loud ticking noise was unbearable. I had a mustang mechanic look at it and even he had a hard time locating the issue. So I got me a mechanics stethoscope and sure enough was leaking on both sides. I installed Mr. Gasket copper gaskets and it has been perfect. Shld have spent the $40 to begin with but it was a lessoned learned. Not sure if this will help but its my 2 cents

took my car to midas and had the mechanic put the car up on the hoist and checked it with the stethoscope probe and said I don't have a leak anywhere

I agree with both. Either header gaskets or rockers. If you have copper likely will be no problem but look for black discolouration around them. I always check mine with oil changes. Plus keep a couple sets of copper gaskets on hand. Seems rockers need adjustment once a year. Buy rubber valve cover gaskets makes it easy to check them without replacing gaskets everytime. Worn pushrod could do this too
